Our National Mission
What We Offer
Once a member of Junior League, women experience many rewarding benefits, including:
The Junior League of Boise was accepted into the Associate of Junior Leagues of America in March of 1928 with 28 charter members. With the depression gripping the country, the first order of business was to help the women and children in the Treasure Valley by hosting summer camps for underprivileged children, holding nutrition classes and well-baby clinics. These efforts provided the women and their families with nourishing food and improved the health of the babies, children, and mothers.
Since our founding, we’ve consistently strived to work together to improve the lives of our friends, families, and neighbors in the Treasure Valley. Our history is rich with signature fundraising and volunteer projects (hyperlink to signature project page), led by our impressive list of strong female members. Our members are stand-up, accomplished women, many of whom have been recognized by the Idaho Business Review as Women of the Year and Accomplished Under 40, to name a few of our members’ many accolades.
We welcome women of all backgrounds and work to get to the “big solution” through a process that encourages each and every one of us to contribute in our own way. The sum is truly bigger than its part within in the Junior League. We’re an ambitious group of executives, community leaders, entrepreneurs, full-time mothers, and professional women who bond together to focus on two things: becoming better leaders and making a positive impact on our community.
